Juniper bushes are native to Colorado and can grow in many different kinds of soil as long as it provides ample drainage.
If you’re considering planting a bush in your yard, juniper plants are considered a rugged plant that can grow in many light conditions and survive drought conditions. Just remember that removing them is a chore compared to other hedge species. Even a moderate size juniper bush can take a day or longer to remove the shrubs and especially the root system. It is hard and labor intensive work, so juniper removals can cost more than you’d anticipate.
